Our mission is to bring mental health conversations out of the shadows and provide vital support and resources for teenagers and adolescents struggling with anxiety and depression.
Based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Michael’s Giving H.A.N.D. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on helping teens, parents, counselors, and teachers recognize and understand anxiety disorders and depression. Established in 2016 by the Michael P. Donatucci Foundation, Michael’s Giving H.A.N.D. (MGH) seeks to bring anxiety and depression out of the shadows so that we can erase the stigma associated with the illnesses, With the support of our mental health partners, including Jefferson Health, we educate the Greater Philadelphia community on adolescent anxiety and depression through our Educational Outreach Program. Our Adolescent Mental Health Counseling Program with Jefferson health, seeks to help teens and their families navigate these illnesses.
Through these two programs, MGH bridges the gap that exists with most education based, nonprofit organizations, going beyond information to action.
